The earth year

The earth year is the duration of one revolution of the earth around the sun, measured from one (apparent) passage of the sun through the vernal equinox to the next. One oscillation per year corresponds 32 octaves higher to a tone C# of 136.10 Hz (oscillations per second) and after a further 42 doublings of the frequency to the light color blue-green. The fundamental tone is one or two octaves higher for small singing bowls and one octave lower for large singing bowls.


As the earth revolves around the sun, phases with lots of sunshine in summer and little sunshine in winter alternate. Photoperiods (duration of daylight), temperatures and food supply in the respective seasons control biological processes such as reproduction, hibernation or animal migrations.

From a sound therapy perspective, the annual tone 136.10 Hz and the corresponding color blue-green have a relaxing, calming and balancing effect. Just as the rhythm of the day primarily affects the body, the changing of the seasons primarily affects the psyche, the heart and soul.

The traditional music of the soul-oriented culture of India (keyword: transmigration of the soul), as well as its chanting of the sacred primeval syllable "Om", usually coincides intuitively (without specifying a frequency number) with the earth year tone. According to Indian teachings, "Om" is based on Anahata Nad, the unstruck, eternal sound of the spheres. In the Indian doctrine of the seven subtle body centers, the heart chakra is called Anahata Chakra.


The description of the effect of the cosmic octave tones, which is based on subjective experience, is intended as a suggestion. Feel the vibration yourself and observe how you and others react to the respective vibration. A series of experiences with the earth year tone can develop into an "emerald green thread" that makes the effect of this frequency increasingly clear.
